[b-hebrew] YHVH Derivation

          Is there any etymological connection between the Tetragrammaton
and the idea of "breathing" or "breath"?  The Siddur says, "The breathing of
all life praises thy Name," and I'm wondering if this might be more than
merely a platitude.  Could there be an actual connection between YHVH and
"breath"?
